Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

How do I change the passwrds that allows you to use my wifi. I am computer stupid and cant figure it out, I even used google to try and do it and didnt quite understand the instructions. PLEASE HELP! THANKS
Assuming you're talking about the password for your router/hub/ that comes from your ISP and I don't think you can change it. When you signed up for your WIFI service you should have received documentation telling you (among other things) what your password is. My ISP is BT (British Telecom) and the password appears on a plastic card located in a slot behind the hub.
I assume you are not talking about your own password or the administrative (root) password for your machine. You'll have to be a bit clearer if you expect to get any assistance.
